I'm guessing that the movies work well when played on their own. If this
is the case then it may just be a data rate problem. Do the movies begin
poorly and then play well after a second or two? Or do they stutter all
the way through?
Digital video members are set to be direct to stage by default, but
check to see that this is true. Not direct to stage can cause poor
Having a Flash sprite in the same frame as a digital video sprite can
also cause poor playback. If both sprite's members are set to be direct
to stage, the playback might be horrendous.
If it's all the way through, and there are no Flash sprites in the same
frame(s) where you are playing the QT file then the data rate for those
movies may be too high. You may need to recompress the files. It could
be the video side that's at fault or the audio, or both.
If the dv sprite stutters only at the beginning, then the problem may be
that you need to give the QT player time to load the movie. This can be
accomplished by placing the dv sprite in a few frames before you
actually need to play it. The sprite can be placed off the visible area
of the stage and then moved in to position when you want to play it.

Also, H.264 is a processor-intensive codec. What sort of CPU are you
running it on?
it starts quite fast, then starts to run slow when the screen gets a bit more busy!!
im just wondering if there is any other compression format that you would recommend using in director, as ive tried a few but im a bit clueless!?
cpu im using is an athlon 2.8 I think, im guessing I just need to render it out using a different codec or format?
